Relinking in PrPro after aaf import (Avid sequence)

(Avid MC 6.0.1 + PrPro CS 5  /  Win7)




Is it possible to relink to Avid's MXF files?


I  followed the video2brain tutorial "Premiere for Avid Editors":


1. (in Avid) export Avid sequence an an *.aaf file

2. (in PrPro) import the aaf

3. PrPro creates a new folder with the sequence and the clips in it.

4. (in PrPro) relink clips to Avid's MXF files - and this is not working!


I get the error message "The file has an unsupported compression type."

(the guy in the tutorial claims that this is no problem at all - he just do not have the Avid media files on this machine ...)


So, how do you do it?

    If you want to spend about 200 dollars, there is third party MXF importer available.



    Works quite well, I've done lots of AVID project onlining with Premiere/AE.

    You have to install Avid codec pack too.
